My wife Becky and I moved our family to Amherst to give our three children access to a high quality public education in a diverse community with strong social values.

We've been grateful to call Amherst home for the past eleven years, working and volunteering in our public schools in a variety of roles. I look forward to continuing this important work in service on School Committee.
